Ahli defense stalwart Wael Gomaa says he is confident of handling Zamalek striker Abdoulaye Cisse ahead of both sides’ crunch Champions League encounter on Sunday.
Gomaa, who teamed up with Cisse during his loan spell at Qatari side Al-Siliya five years ago, stated that he is capable of stopping the Burkinabe’s danger as he knows well all his opponent’s ‘weaknesses’.
“Cisse was my team-mate at Al-Siliya. I hoped he would play for Ahli before joining Masri,” The 36-year-old Gomaa told FilGoal.com.
“I know well all his weaknesses and I am confident I can stop his danger in the derby.
“I crave for returning to football action following the injury that kept me away for quite a while as I hope I can regain my form against Zamalek.”
Gomaa has been out of action for several months with a recurring calf injury that forced him to miss Egypt’s recent World Cup and CAN 2013 qualifiers.
